Women’s Earth & Climate Action Network, International (WECAN)
This September 2014, top international politicians, business figures, and activists will gather in New York City for the UN Climate Leadership Summit, a foundational meeting called by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in preparation for the 2014 and 2015 UN Climate Negotiations. In the days preceding this crucial assembly, civil society organizations worldwide, including WECAN International, will be leading a variety of events and actions, demanding that global leaders end years of stagnation, coming to the table with innovative proposals and the collective and political will to make clear, concrete commitments to climate action.
